“This you must not miss”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Close to Paarl and just off the freeway is Fairview. If you plan to come here , make it a stay for the rest of the day. For R20.00 you get a selection of six wines to taste and as much cheese to taste with that. There are more expensive tours - R60.00 per person that offers more wine to taste , but then be warned , you might like to stay the night. The wines and cheeses are excelent and also very affordable.
This is an adult trip , leave the kids at home and enjoy the day by yourself , we cerrainly did.

“Wine Tasting”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I enjoyed the wine tasting as it was my first time to do so. It was interesting to note the differences of the wines when put together. I loved the apricot cheese. Also they had very good breads on site. It was educational for me!

“One of the most fun”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This wine farm is fabulous. Buy a "cheese and wine tasting" pass when you arrive and taste as much cheese as you would like throughout your wine tasting. In a beautiful area. Quite a way out of Stellenbosch (±20min) so be aware of the distance - I suggest you do wine farms in the same area to reduce your traveling time.

“Wine Tour”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Enjoyed this winery. Liked the wine choices and the opportunity to sample their home-made cheeses with the wine. Their retail store area is quite nice and I wish I could have taken some of their products home with me but needed refrigeration!

“Say cheese”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is an easy one...if you are into cheese...then this is your place.
They have a selection of the most delicious cheeses, served with preserves and freshly baked ciabatta....just too yummy!

Tip - make sure to reserve a place at the restaurant (Goat shed I think its called) ...it will be full if you just rock up there!
